Fire Camp at Lake Superior State University!

Jim organized a fire science camp for high school juniors and seniors. The camp ran from Thursday to Sunday and on Sunday they had a firefighter competition and invited the area fire departments to participate. And they sold t-shirts to make some money for scholarships for next year's camp, so more students can afford to come. The cost of the camp was kept low because Jim and the other staff volunteered their time. It was great. :-) The gear was lined up and ready to go,

The fire trucks all nice and neat in a line,

Jim and the teacher's assistants and the campers themselves,

And everyone joined in for a huge group shot. Pickford Fire Dept, Soo Township Fire Dept, Kinross Fire Dept, Bay Mills Fire Dept, Superior Township, Sault Ste Marie Fire Dept,

The games included a bucket brigade,

And they pulled a fire truck,

And in the end, everyone got wet, including Dr. Schaefer.

If anyone would like to buy a tshirt, they are red like the one Jim is wearing. Except yours will be unused, and definately not wet. There is a small emblem on the front that says LSSU Fire Competition 2008, the shirt is $10, I will pay for shipping, and all proceeds go to scholarships for next year's camp. Email me at (Donations for scholarships will also be gladly accepted, contact me for more info.)
